Preparation

  • Trim and halve the Brussels sprouts. Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and shallots and stir until coated, about 1 minute.
  • Add 1 cup water, and season lightly with salt. Cover and steam until almost tender, about 7 minutes.
  • Uncover and simmer until the water evaporates, 5 to 7 minutes more. Stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and thyme. Season to taste with more lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and serve.
